“The most famous bridge connecting Buda andPest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A wonderful bridge to walk over and enjoy the view of the Danube, especially at night, with the lit up Castle complex on one side and the Parliament on the other side.

“Take a Picture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Okay, so it's just a bridge shared by cars and pedestrians (no buses or trucks), but in a romantic, scenic locale linking Buda and Pest. Stroll along the Danube on ether side, or rent a bike. Nice views day or night. Bring your camera for a selfie or take a picture of the historic buildings and boats. Worth a visit for sure.

“It's free and the views are what it's al about”

The Chain bridge links Buda with Pest. The views are extraordinary and postcard worthy. You truly get a great sense of the old and new.

“Mesmerizing - from whatever way I look at it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is such an iconic part of Budapest, and I love it from every angle, every time, day or night, when I have the pleasure of being near it. It offers beautiful views, and it is itself a beautiful thing to look at - either from the sides, walking towards it, or from halfway up the Buda Castle, right above the tunnel, where there's a little spot from which you can admire the lights of the bridge and Pest during the evening.

“Linking Buda to Pest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Nice walk and good views of the river from the bridge. Look back at the ancient fenicular. Links Buda to Pest and good shopping on the Pest side
